This east coast resort bay, with two sand beaches, provides excellent protection in the southwest monsoon Anchor in 10 metres on a sandy bottom off the northern beach jetty at the Juara Bay Resort.
There is a small community village ashore and several small resorts where limited provisions are available.
A scenic six‑kilometre track that now can take motorbikes runs back over the mountain to Teluk Tekek Village Bay. Above the high tide line on the southern beach are temporary low fenced mesh and bamboo turtle hatchery compounds in the sand.
Each year conservationists erect these to protect the newly-laid eggs, then two months later release over 20,000 turtle hatchlings into the waters here. Statistically only two will survive long enough to return to lay their eggs.
